listen to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better, and this is a reform speech. i thought it was a very good -- because it wasn't just practical. i think for republicans they can't be the party of bob dole caring only about the deficit.

education and training, energy and national security will cost us jobs. and it will slow down our recovery. it's not the right thing to do for the economy. it's not the right thing for folks out there still looking for work. our economy right now is headed in the right direction. and it will stay that way as long as there aren't any more self-inflicted wounds coming out of washington. >> this self-inflicted wound would include massive cuts to virtually every government program. from medicare and housing to head start and food aid for children. the president wants republicans to delay those cuts through a balanced approach that would force corporations and the wealthy to give up some of their special tax break. and pay their fair share. >> these modest reforms in our social insurance programs have to go hand in hand with tax reform. so the wealthiest individuals and corporations can't take advantage of loopholes and deductions that aren't available to most americans. there is no reason that the jobs of thousands of americans who work in national security or education or clean energ

educate freshmen congressman who know very little about the complexities of reform. lesson number one is already clear. move past last year's republican rhetoric on self-deportation and electrified fences. >> this debate is often emotionally charged. that's because it's not about abstract statistics and concepts, but rather about real people with real problems trying to provide a better life for their families. >> we seek to harmonize two foundational preaccepts. number one is humanity. number two is respect for the rule of law. >> humane rhetoric? yes, but humane policies? question mark. republican leadership is transcribinging a decidedly softer tone on immigration, but the party will still have to contend with members like carrie who said, "what are you seeing here is a shameless political ploy to buy new voters. democrats want the votes, and republicans the cheap labor. immigration reform shouldn't be about buying off lawbreakers so they'll consider becoming republican." joining us now so give us the straight dope is die hard kanye west fan nbc's luke russert. i say that, my friend,

is a smart, educated guy. he goes down to san diego, allegedly to steal a boat. indicates that he wants to go to mexico. ed, he drops his wallet with his badge in it. come on, this guy is smarter than that. he left it so we would find it. he goes up to big bear, drops his car off and sets it on fire, almost putting spotlights on saying now i'm up here. this guy is trying to make us look left, make us look right. ed, if he would is a been up in big bear mountain last night, it got to about 15 or 20 degrees. if this guy was carrying guns, ammo, and street clothes and walking through the mountains, 275 pounds, he would have started sweating, he would have got hypothermia. had he stayed outside, he would have died. if police say he is not in any of the cabins up there, and they know that for sure, he either had a switch car up there, or somehow he stole or hijacked a car and left that mountain area. and whatever he did, ed, he is probably one of the more dangerous fugitives that law enforcement has looked for in a long time. he knows weapons. he knows police and military tactics. he h

background. very diverse. it all starts with being a combat veteran in vietnam. and of course educated under the g.i. bill. he understands veterans' issues and the possibility of what military war does, of course, to the guys on the ground. he has experience in washington and in the business world unparalleled to anybody on that senate armed services committee. he's a self-made guy in american business. this man has a resume most of these senators wish they had. he never did anything as reckless as john mccain did when he picked sarah palin to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. gosh, i wish he could have reversed the questioning today. if you ask me, this opposition to hagel is nothing but sour grapes. jealousy and envy. this man is qualified. he has impeccable integrity. he would be perfect. he also knows how to manage people, departments, and he'll be able to get his arms around the pentagon budget and maybe they can finally audit themselves, as we've had senators on this program say the pentagon is so big they can't even audit themselves. give hagel a shot. he deserves it. bec

economy and i think that the problems are we have to invest in education, make sure people have opportunities and make sure that the government doesn't pull back right now. >> what we also know is there are republicans who still strongly say and assert that the stimulus did not work and they do not believe in exactly what you just said. >> economists, the majority of those interviewed by "wall street journal" believes the stimulus works. 3 million jobs because of the stimulus and other thing is about the education thing i mentioned before. the unemployment rate for people with college degrees are higher is 3.7%. unemployment rate for people who don't have high school diplomas, 12%. education matters. why exactly would we want to cut investment in our infrastructure and education at this time? >> zachary, let's play what alan krueger said. he was on with chuck todd earlier talking about the politics of what we're watching as it relates to this recovery. let me play it, please. >> you have a pretty good jobs report and i know, you know, i know what you'll probably say on that. goo

tout new education initiatives, ways to simplify the tax code, kush health care costs, immigration reform. ron fournier with the "national journal," jonathan, asked this question -- "with a democratic tide threatening to crush the dpop, is it enough to just tweak talking points?" what do you say to that question? >> i think there's a tendency among policy maker, politicians who are in the legislative chamber all day, to be using this policy. they talk about the fiscal cliff, about entitlement reform, about debalancing the budget. but it's devoid of any value to the average voter. so fournier may have a point there, but i think it's critical for republicans to be talking about the values behind these policies, that we're always promoting. fiscal responsibility, why are we doing that? because that's a path to prosperity. i think that's a critical thing that eric cantor is doing today and i applaud him for doing it. >> that is what he does seem to be wanting to talk about, connecting the dots. and steve, he isn't just talking about -- you know, he isn't talking at all about moderating

they need to get educated in school including children with disabilities. whether we are going to be supporting the elderly to help with their heating bill or in the summertime, their air conditioning. whether we provide homeless assistance for people who are homeless to get them back into permanent housing. we are talking about a series of programs that not only help our citizens get back to work. they are fundamental to ensuring families will just survive to the end of the paycheck. >> practically speak the alternative if you look at what president obama laid out yesterday rveg yesterday, he was asking them to take it off the table and put the idea of a grand bargain back on the table. it takes that same basic $1.2 trillion target and this time about half from new revenues and closing loopholes and deductions. the other half is from sbrilthsmentes and this idea of cpi which is a reduction in benefits for people. how would you compare the grand bargains to the programs in which you are talking about if the sequester takes place. is one worse than the other? >> do we have to have thi

women are mad as hell about no sexual education, contraception. graduating in huge debt which is terrible for everybody, men and women, to be indentured at that point in life. i mean, i think that's one of the great sins of this country. but it's even worse for women, because they're going to earn $2 million less over the course of their lifetime to pay the debt back. and within that is all the differences of race and ethnicity besides that. believe me, they are mad. >> if you read "jezebel" or any of that, i think that's happening in space. you see that discourse. >> it's evolving which is what it's meant to do. people talk that the labor movement is dead. i would argue that's not true. there's an incredible labor movement out there being won largely by woman. lots of women of color because that's who the workforce is. and it's exactly that. it's evolving, and we have to learn how to understand the relationship of movement to institution. from movement to institution. and when we talk about legislation, it is true that we need to pass legislation. we need the uprising to create

they want sort of these educational reforms that are more market oriented. so the things that you're starting to see the republican party move on are really things the business wing wants. >> but when you look at the fact, ryan, that is in just the public conversation, that this split in the republican party and clearly those that are considered more establishment. they say those offend a lot of people that they need if they're ever going to be competitive. let me give you an example. are there options that we should consider between the extremes of mass deportation and a pathway to citizenship for those not lawfully present in the united states. >> well, let me say that i do believe that a pathway to citizenship should be the option that the congress selects. i don't see that as an extreme option. >> the gop still sees a path way to citizen ship as an extreme option? is this a sign of progress on the right? >> i guess it depends on where you start from the progress. if it's from 2010, then, yes, absolutely, that's progress. but from ten years ago, 20 years ago, no, it's not q
